Last week I got a call from someone who had won a gift certificate that I had recently donated to the Tennyson Center for Children. Which was so funny because I was thinking of it that day, and then she called!
But the woman who called was so incredibly nice, and she is from Texas! I love Texans, they are the sweetest people! Plus I go down there 2 times a year to visit my boyfriend’s family. Anyway, we got to talking and she really didn’t have any idea as to what she wanted to do for her husband and son. So the next day I called her back because she was supposed to look at our website and get some ideas. The only thing she knew was that her son’s favorite kind of cake is white wedding cake with buttercream. I thought that was awesome, hey they don’t call them classics for nothing!
So she really left it up to me to come up with a design. When I told her what I was thinking about doing, she loved it and gave me complete control, which is always fun!
So here is what I came up with! I love this cake. We swirled the frosting on the top to look like snow and then sprayed a silver sheen over that to make it look like real snow. We made fondant fish, seaweed, and rocks for the side of the cake. Before we we put all of that on we sprayed the side with the airbrush as opposed to mixing in color with the entire frosting. It was different than what I normally do, but I love it!!
If you ever need a cake for more than one person, call us for a consultation! We have great ideas and can think outside of the box for you! We customize anything, and that is one reason why Y. Lo Epicure is so special and differently than any other catering company in Denver!
